    Long one of the Green events in the UK the mood is decidedly on the gloomy side. Even the illustrious James Lovelock (inventor of teh famous Gaia theory of the earth) was subdued and made a particularly candid admission

    "Who knows? Everybody might be wrong," he says. "I may be wrong. Climate change may not happen as fast as we thought, and we may have 1,000 years to sort it out."

    Obviously he had much more to say but to even utter those words took considerable thought from him to do so.
